RICOH LAUNCHES PRO 907/PRO 1107/PRO 1357 DIGITAL IMAGING SYSTEMS
Production Series Extension Features New Design and Unparalleled Performance
West Caldwell, NJ, September 11, 2009 - Ricoh Americas Corporation, the leading provider in digital office equipment, today launched the Ricoh Pro 907/Pro 1107/Pro 1357 Digital Imaging Systems with black and white laser printer. These systems are an extension of the Ricoh Pro 907EX/Pro 1107EX/Pro 1357EX series which launched in July 2009. With its advanced performance and improved finishing features, the series is ideal for a variety of customers and is designed to better meet the current needs of today’s demanding marketplace.
With a powerful combination of speed, reliability and operational efficiency, users can rely on the Ricoh Pro 907/Pro 1107/Pro 1357 to deliver maximum results with extreme precision. The series leads the market in print speed with 135 pages-per-minute (ppm), and offers faster performance due to its enhanced memory architecture, which includes a standard 1GB RAM and two 160 GB Hard Drives. The series also provides its users expanded in-house capabilities, including a robust Data Center controller that enhances job management and limits the need for outsourcing. By handling a wider variety of media sizes and stocks, as well as high-volume runs of large, multi-page documents, the need to pause and re-load trays is greatly minimized.
Versatile finishing options give customers the ability to create a variety of professionally-finished documents, without interruption. The Ricoh Pro 907/Pro 1107/Pro provides customers even more options with a new Multi-Folding Unit that offers six patterns and a high-performance booklet finisher which includes a booklet trimmer. These features, along with the ability to support a wider variety of media sizes and stocks, provide customers a competitive advantage and significantly reduce labor costs, passing on additional savings.
Customers can expect reliable, un-interrupted operation in both the long-term, as well as during peak production. Driven by design enhancements to the drum and other components, the Ricoh Pro 907/Pro 1107/Pro 1357 identifies and corrects multiple-sheet feeding with an innovative ultrasonic sensor that improves detection accuracy. The sensor ensures maximum uptime for high-volume copying, printing and scanning, and uses precise airflow to ensure fast, error-free media handling. The series is also equipped with enhanced Trained Customer Replaceable Units (TCRU’s), which minimize downtime and don’t require a service call.
“With the release of this extended series, we’re able to offer our customers products and solutions they need in order to effectively compete in the production printing market,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of Marketing, PPBG, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “The precision, versatility and performance of the series serve as another example of the best-in-class solutions we constantly strive for at Ricoh.”
Security continues to be an essential tool with the series extension. Advanced security features allow customers to protect sensitive customer documents, and the system itself, by requiring identification confirmation of individuals prior to system access. Internal and external authentication, along with access restriction, control which features authorized users can employ. Users can prevent Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, reduce the risk of virus relay and defend against user name/password theft with the Network Protocol On/Off function. Protecting data from interception, analysis and tampering with encrypted transmission is supported by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
The Pro 907/Pro 1107/Pro 1357 Printer version is available at a suggested retail price of $45,000, $55,000 and $65,000, respectively.
